Sometimes Boring is a Good Thing

Today I saw my dermatologist…for my annual exam after having squamous cell carcinoma removed from my nose in spring of 2009. She went over my skin with a lighted magnifier and pronounced me boring.

Oddly enough, the medical oncologist I had to see in September as a follow-up to the DCIS in my left breast also pronounced me boring. Well, she actually said my DCIS was pretty boring.

So, if anyone is counting, in the last five years I’ve been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, Celiac Sprue, Squamous-Cell Carcinoma and Ductile Carcinoma In Situ.

It turned out the MS was really a neurological symptom of Celiac. When I stopped eating gluten the symptoms all resolved within about six months and haven’t been back in five years. It got old about four years and eleven months ago.

As for the other stuff, I’ve never been so happy to be boring.
